What you will do
3 hour class
Spend the day with Cookie Girl in her North London kitchen where you will try your hand at a variety of icing techniques from sugar paste roses to fondant domes and you get to take your beautiful creations away with you at the end.
In this class
No previous cupcaking/decorating/piping skills are needed.just turn up and enjoy!
You won't spend your time faffing about with cake mixture or oven timings - no no that's not why you are here. Cookie Girl (also known as Xanthe) will have prepared the cupcakes earlier in the day so you can focus on what you came here to do - getting creative. All it takes to become a pro is:
- learn the right way to fill a piping bag (yes, there is a wrong way to do it)
- make a sugar paste
- use cutters to make flowers, leaves and lattice effects
- the classic swirl, the rose swirl, the two tier and the iced gem techniques
- sprinkles and decorations are all fun and games, but sometimes less is more!
Everything is provided by the Cookie Girl; including aprons, tea, coffee and cupcakes, so all you need to do is bring yourself and buckets of enthusiasm.
Cupcakes aside, you're guaranteed to have a ball - bring those cake-loving friends of yours or meet some fellow baking enthusiasts. You can even bring a date - what a great way to break the ice(ing).. (sorry).
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.
